Vienna puts on Bohème with jump-ins in 3 top roles

Message from American soprano Rebecca Nelsen:

Tonight, there were THREE people jumping in to the performance of La Bohème at the Vienna @volksoper! Mimi, Marcello, and Rodolfo were all sung by people who were not originally scheduled to sing tonight! The show went really well and we had a very receptive audience for our very unique performance even standing ovations at the end from the packed house! HUGE props to Jason Kim for jumping in on a huge role with one day’s warning and a single staging rehearsal. Also Orhan Yildiz sang the role of Marcello beautifully from the orchestra pit while Andrei Bondarenko, who is unfortunately under the weather today, acted the role convincingly onstage! I had a huge orchestra rehearsal yesterday and flew in from Mallorca landing at 3pm today before the show and am so happy and relieved at how well it went… HUGE thanks to conductor Carlo Goldstein for rolling so well musically with this unique evening! Happy and tired Mimi!.
